IPA 2016

I went all of the way to Northwestern Vietnam to shoot this beautiful photograph. Just to give you an idea of how far I was, I walked for about two hours down a very wooded path to reach my destination. This photograph is of a young mother and child in the H'mong ethnic group. What I find very interesting about the mother is that she is 18 years old and has never been photographed before. I begin to shoot her photograph and the pictures did not turn out very well because she was shy at first. After I spent some time with her and her family she began to warm up to me and the thought of being photographed. After that I was able to shoot a series of beautiful pictures of her. Here is a beautiful picture that I was able to capture.

Harvey turned Texans’ lives upside down not just human, but animal too. It delivered non-stopping rainfall that ruined countless animal ecosystems in Texas. They just have nowhere to go. There are plenty human shelters but none available for animal. In a way, those suffering animal took a way bigger hit than we ever did. I followed and witnessed this deer. He was swimming around one place in 30 minutes before finding another direction to follow with an attempt to get out of the flood. I was heavily thrilled to just think of the desperation he was facing at that specific moment.

Fisher Life

A fishing village in Phuoc Hai, Vietnam. I came here so often that it makes me feel like this place is my hometown. Every morning, Phuoc Hai is bustling with ships coming and leaving the pier after a long period of overnight finishing. Seeing the fishermen happiness makes my day knowing that their hard work has been paid off. P.s: This place is famous for not only its beautiful, peaceful, pristine and romantic beaches but also fish sauce and dried fish.
